Tired at the top

If our First Minister Alex Salmond has any hope of turning round the Scottish voters in favour of independence then he needs to revitalise and reshuffle the tired and weary appearance of his Cabinet, many members of which have been on board for far too long.

In modern politics there is a real need to bring new blood to the fore and Alex Salmond has many to choose from rather than rely on the old cronies of the party that are now well past their sell-by date.
